2021 Jun 05, 13:26, Kathmandu

According to sources, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal is likely to announce measures for  unlocking the city, which has been under Covid-19 induced lockdown on Saturday.

With a dip seen in active Covud-19 cases, Delhi has begun the unlocking process from May31 with factories and construction sector to resume operations. The national capital has been under lockdown since April 19 in view of the massive surge in Covid-19 cases in the second wave of the pandemic. The city's healthcare infrastructure and crematoriums were hugely overburdened. The situation has  however, improved significantly.

Currently, there is a lockdown in Delhi till 5:00am on Monday, June 7. Late on Friday, Maharashtra issued a five level unlock plan in its districts beginning Monday which will be based on COVID positivity rate and the availability of oxygen beds in the state. 

Meanwhile, Delhi recorded 523 fresh COVID-19 cases and 50 deaths on Friday, said the heath bulletin of the union territory.  

However, the daily number was a bit higher than a day before when the national capital reported 487 COVID cases. The number of active cases in Delhi stands at 8,060. The new fatalities pushed the COVID death toll in Delhi to 24,297
